Call For Papers

IEEE LANMAN has an established tradition as a forum for presenting and discussing the latest technical advances in local and metropolitan area networking. Continuing that tradition, IEEE LANMAN 2015 invites cutting-edge papers spanning both theory and experimentation. Papers are solicited in all areas of networking, but in keeping with the current research trend, this workshop’s central theme is Software Defined Datacenters. The intimate single-track session format of the workshop encourages stimulating exchanges between researchers. The workshop is expected to be a forum for discussion of new and interdisciplinary ideas on architectures, service models, pricing, and performance. Speculative and potentially transformative ideas are particularly encouraged, as are studies reporting measurements from real-life networks and testbeds. Papers are solicited on any LANMAN topic including, but not limited to, the following:
Novel data center network architectures
Software defined data center networks
Data center network virtualization
Name-to-name communications and name-based abstractions
Energy-efficiency in data centers
Routing and transport protocols in data center networks
Data center network pricing
Resource allocation in data center networks
Performance measurement and modeling of data centers
Inter-data center network issues
Reliable data center networks
Machine-to-machine communications
Access networks for densely located users
Broadband wireless access, including WiMAX, LTE
WiFi: roaming services, architectures, and performance
Metropolitan and residential networks and architectures including Ethernet in the first mile, EPONs, FTTx, etc.
Network management related to edge networks
Heterogeneous wireless and ad-hoc networks
Local-area and metropolitan-area network security
LAN-based and MAN-based applications (gaming, distributed computing, media distribution to and in the home, enterprise applications, ambient technology, wearable-computing)
Impact of sensors everywhere including homes

IEEE LANMAN 2015 solicits paper submissions of Regular Papers (up to 6 pages) and Short Papers (up to 2 pages). The short papers will be presented in a poster session. Also, some of regular paper submissions may be accepted as short papers by the TPC. The page limits include all figures, tables, and references. All papers must be electronically submitted in PDF according to the guidelines in the workshop website The proceedings will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore. Best Paper Award will be given to the paper(s) with the highest technical merit. The paper submission site is

All IEEE LANMAN 2015 technical papers and posters must be associated with an author registration at the full rate. For authors presenting multiple papers/posters, one full registration is valid for up to three papers/posters. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper/poster from distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper/poster is not presented at the workshop.

Important dates:
Paper Submission: Feb 22, 2015, Sunday (11:59pm EDT)
Acceptance Notification: Mar 15, 2015, Sunday
Camera-ready Submission: Mar 31, 2015, Tuesday
